Mark Wright has confirmed that he will be taking part on this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The former TOWIE star made the announcement tonight during his Heart radio show Mark’s Heart Club Classics. Talking to listeners Mark said, I wanted you to know first. You know I can’t dance and all that, and I’ve got absolutely no rhythm and they call me ‘Marky no moves’, well… the dancing shoes are coming out, and once and for all I’m going to learn to dance! As this year I am taking part in Strictly Come Dancing! Laugh all you want, like my friends and family have done, I don’t care, I’m gonna do it. I love a challenge. I love to conquer a challenge that I’m not that good at, and this is exactly that.”
He went on to say, “I’m gonna put everything into it. I know the only move in my locker is a caterpillar, and I know that I’m gonna look funny insequins, but… I do like to try hard and I do like to crack new challenges.”
Mark’s announcement follows the reveals of Thom Evans, Alison Hammond, Judy Murray and Frankie Bridge as contestants for this year’s series.
Strictly Come Dancing will return to our screens in September and more celebrities will be revealed in the coming days.
